The hunter and the fascination of death ...
--> featured in imagineFX issue 68




Ein Jäger

Ich kenn’ einen Jäger, man heißt ihn „Tod“:
Seine Wang’ ist blaß, sein Speer ist rot,
Sein Forst ist die Welt, er zieht auf die Pirsch
Und jaget Elen und Edelhirsch.

Im Völkerkrieg, auf blutigem Feld
Ist’s, wo er sein Kesseltreiben hält;
Haß, Ehrfurcht und Geizen nach Ruhmesschall
Sind Treiber im Dienste des Jägers all.

Nicht fürcht’ ich ihn selber, wie nah er auch droht,
Doch wohl seine Rüden: Gram, Krankheit und Not,
Die Meute, die stückweis das Leben zerfetzt
Und zögernd uns in die Grube hetzt.


- T. Fontane

Man, I LOVE the colors chosen here. The background is awesome. The light hitting the skull, cape, and the man's face are very well done and really bright the viewer's attention to the most important parts of the picture. Very fascinating picture.

Beautiful. Though I don't know the character, the warm color scheme does seem to fit quite well, kind of gives it an Old West gothic feel to it.
Actually it kind of reminds me of The Dark Tower series :)

wow that's really incredible :33.
And the colors, work so perfectly :), the way the light is spread through this piece in my opinion is perfect. No need to worry if it doesn't fit the character as much as you'd hoped, cause it does certainly fit the piece like you said :D

Cool atmospheric colours! All it needs is some atmospheric music to go along with it and a slow zoom in to make it FREAKY!

Auch wenn die Farben nicht zu dem Charakter passen hat es etwas schoenes, durch die warmen "Sandtoene" wirkt es etwas trist, passt gut!

verdammt geil. zeichnerisch sowie künsterlisch dein, mal wieder, bestes werk - spricht wohl dafür, dass du fortschritte machst :)

aus technischer sicht, fallen mir aber sachen in die augen, die mich schon irgendwie 'wütend' machen..kann das nicht anders ausdrücken. ich kann dir nur sagen, dass mit ein paar einstellungen und ein paar veränderungen das bild - in meinen augen - 3 mal besser wirken würde.
